Monaco Marine acquires Antibes Marine Chantier
by Raphael Montigneaux
Monaco Marine, the Mediterranean yacht maintenance and repair specialist founded by Michel Ducros in 1995, has acquired the shipyard Antibes Marine Chantier, also known as Chantier Tréhard.
Antibes Marine Chantier has a turnover of €7 million and employs 21 shipbuilding experts. Ideally located in one of the largest harbours of the world, the shipyard is known for the quality of its work, and has built some large sailing yachts in the past, the last one being Vaimiti, a 39m sailing yacht launched in 2003. The activity will continue and the site will benefit from an ISO 9000 certification.
With this new shipyard, Monaco Marine has comprehensively extended its reach across the south of France with shipyards in Antibes, Monaco, Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Saint-Laurent-du-Var, Cogolin and La Ciotat.
